Will Nintendo Release a 4K Nintendo Switch Model?

This does not have to mean that an eventual new model of Nintendo Switch – be it a revision or a successor, which they do not think about yet, apparently – is going to incorporate DLSS to reach resolutions such as 4K thanks to super sampling; but NVIDIA, in charge of providing the chip that mounts the company’s current console, is responsible for this technology.

Different sources not confirmed by Nintendo maintain that a future NVIDIA chip for the Nintendo Switch will incorporate this capability. Faced with reports from the Bloomberg media last September pointing to the circulation of Nintendo Switch development kits in 4K, Nintendo denied the claims and called them “inaccurate.”
